About this title:

Synopsis: When Sister Marilyn Smith fails to turn up for work, her patients are worried. Evelyn Shiers, her nosy neighbour, is anxious too. Later that afternoon, the police find her dead in the bedroom lying spread-eagled across the bed. She is provocatively dressed and elaborately made-up.

Book Description Macmillan, 1995. Hardcover. Condition: Fine. Dust Jacket Condition: Fine. 1st Edition. This is a signed first edition first printing hardback in fine condition. The book is without fault or blemish of any kind and bears the signature of the author on the title page without inscription or dedication. The page block is tight, white and square. The unclipped dust wrapper is bright and pristine with the correct price of 14.99 under the publisher s name. It is now protected by an acid free removable archival cover. Miss Masters burst on to the literary scene in 1995 with this, her first novel. There was nothing in her CV up to that time (a book for children and work in a doctor s clinic) which suggested that a new world class writer of detective fiction was waiting in the wings. Winding up the Serpent introduced recently promoted Detective Inspector Joanna Piercy. Not since DI Frost has a police character been so immediately popular and found a place in so many affections. Miss Master s second novel Catch the Fallen Sparrow entered the bestsellers list within days of publication. eleven further DI Joanna Piercy novels have followed with a further one planned. A small initial print run, few promotional events and great subsequent popularity of the author contribute to the rarity of this book in first edition. Signed copies in this lovely condition are rarely offered for sale. This is an important book that would grace any library or collection.
